Amy Winehouse is blowing up. She made her “American television debut” on Letterman recently, then played several shows in Austin at SXSW. I caught her for a few songs at Eternal.
According to The BBC, Winehouse’s new album, Back To Black sold more than 50,000 copies in its first week of release earlier this month. The album landed at a lofty #7 on The Billboard Hot 200 chart, making her the highest debuting British female artist in the history of the coveted U.S. albums chart.
The 23-year-old London-born musician topped the UK charts with the album in December 2006.
